Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Van-Go Adventure Farm (Waterford)

Family Tested
High energy

It's a go!

We were welcomed by a vast field where the pumpkin cannon awaited its master. I have seen such cannons fed by a regular BBQ gas tank but this baby was attached to the kind of tank that could fit on a train wagon. The farmer really loved his toy. He was aiming at an old car way up in the field and reached his target, to cheers from the crowd. Further, there were climbing goats, alpacas, pigs (involved in pig races during the day), peacocks and pheasants. To the right, a bunny village, funny rubber duck races, sand pit, straw pile, jump castle and more. We tried the pumpkin slingshot ourselves. Loaded the bucket, pulled it... and saw it come back at us full speed, with the pumpkin still inside! There is some skill involved here! In the summer, bring the bathing suits. They install a water pad.
